It does.

It's ironic how the idea was added to the agenda in the first place
(only topic on agenda, btw) , and is being questioned now after *two*
meetings on it. What were the two meetings held for? Did we simply waste
a Fedora-India specific townhall meeting?

I did not ridicule. There is no issue at all, it's still a discussion
and will stay that way. Please don't give it such a negative outlook :)

As for the answer to the question:


I think the FUDCon at India will benefit Fedora the same way. 
We *are* the *third largest* contributor to Fedora.  (read /topic at

In the spirit of a good, constructive discussion, I request you to put
forward your views on why a FUDCon in India is a bad idea.

No one has engaged anyone. It is justified to request people to use the
meetings correctly and present their views, *before* a decision is
passed and some work has begun. It's everyone's responsibility when
you're working with such a large community. 

You'd have a bad taste in the mouth too if you had begun working on
something related to the FUDCon. 

You didn't answer the question either :)
